And firstly Hello, Just found this website and joined and after reading through some posts I am sure that I will be able to contribute to some posts etc in the future as I embark on an extension to my property.

I have a patio door that needed replacement glass and when the window beading was removed (not by me I hasten to add) one of the lengths was considerably damaged needing a replacement. I have looked at the inside of the frame for some identification marks of the profile to assist in finding the supplier but alas they seem to be no longer trading which is a shame as the doors are of a great quality.
The markings I have found are :-

LINE 18 HW SYSTEMS VL 1502 BS7413 1991 A10
(Could read UL 1502 as its hard to distinguish between a U and a V)

Any help at all in aquiring either a length or if necessary another solution would be greatly appreciated. :)

Regards Andy

HW Systems = HEYWOOD WILLIAMS = went bust long time ago = good luck with that.

Post a picture of the damaged bead, its possible depending on the type of damage that it could be repaired
